Maidenhair fern makes an exquisite decoration
Maidenhair fern, Adiantum spp., is an herbaceous perennial plant with over 200 fern species. The botanical name 'Adiantum' is derived from 'adios,' a Greek word for 'unwetted.' The genus name derives from the fact that fern leaves remain unwetted by repelling water. The meanings of the species names are subject to their characteristics or origin.
